Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective by Donald J. SobolI could say that I loved the Encyclopedia Brown series as a kid, but that wouldnt be entirely accurate. I wanted to *be* Encyclopedia Brown. When youre the nerdy kid on your block, and you discover a character who is the smartest kid in school, kind of popular despite that fact, can not only stand up to but often humiliate the local bully, and gets to hang out with the prettiest girl in the school? Yeah, youre gonna wish life imitated art in that case. And in my mind, it actually seemed kind of possible. I was determined to seek out neighborhood wrongdoings, solve some petty crimes, and maybe even win a few friends in the process. I went so far as to paint my own detective agency sign and everything... which my mom proceeded to laugh at. When your mom laughs at you, you know right then and there it aint gonna work.
The books were still pretty fun, though, even if my all-too-honest mom made it clear I was never going to get to actually live them out in real life. But like so many kids books that have been continually reprinted through the ages, to older covers were a lot better than what Im seeing up there. This kid here is way too hip to be the Leroy Encyclopedia Brown I grew up with!

Encyclopedia Brown Keeps the Peace by Donald J. Sobol
Encyclopedia Brown is a series of books featuring the adventures of boy detective Leroy Brown, nicknamed "Encyclopedia" for his intelligence and range of knowledge. The series of 29 children's novels was written one co-written by Donald J. Sobol , with the first book published in and the last novel published posthumously, in The Encyclopedia Brown series has spawned a comic strip, a TV series, and compilation books of puzzles and games. Each book in the Encyclopedia Brown mystery series is self-contained in that the reader is not required to have read earlier books in order to understand the stories.
I recommend this especially for reluctant readers who need help for their comprehension skill because this book is structured in a way that for every chapter, there's a new mystery given and the solution for the mysteries is provided at the end of the book instead of the end of chapters. It encourages readers to think. And for adult, it's fun to check your attention to the text.

DO NOT read it to me!! I love reading picture books and beginning readers with her, but I was anxious to see her reaction to being exposed to slightly longer, slightly more mature reading material. Crosses arms and pouts. My salvation ended up coming from an extremely nostalgic place for me — Donald J. We used our local library a lot and I only have a vague recollection of a few specific books that we actually owned ourselves.
